Mario Maker

Nintendo confirmed a September release for Mario Maker back in its April Direct, and now an over-eager Best Buy community manager appears to have outed the release date for Canada. It seems pretty legitimate, falling on a Friday and within that anticipated month - the date given is 11th September.

This potential reveal - and we think it's wise to not regard it as 100% confirmation - came in a broader announcement that Best Buy customers in Canada can get a Nintendo seven button set with a pre-order for Mario Maker and another game from the range announced at E3, with full details coming on 17th June.

You must pre-order Mario Maker for Wii U plus 1 other game from the select list. Once you add both games to your cart, you will need to add the button set SKU. The price will be discounted automatically once all items have been added. The button set will ship with Mario Maker on September 11, 2015.

This also matches up with the 30th Anniversary celebration for Super Mario Bros., which was released in North America on 13th September 1985; that date falls on a Sunday this year, so 11th September is the closest viable Friday release.

Are you excited about Mario Maker's arrival this September?

With thanks to Zach for the heads up.
